If a character is trying to use a gun in close quarters combat, and wants to back up just far enough to be able to fire a rifle, or to be out of Parry range and only need a 4 to hit, can they back up just that far and fire the same round, without incurring the normal Withdrawing From Close Combat penalties?

I am just wondering if backing up for a clear shot is the same rules wise as actually turning tail and retreating?

Thanks,
-Jess

The actual reason for leaving close combat doesn't matter, just the fact that the character has withdrawn from close combat.

Since the effects listed specifically require moving away from a position adjacent to a foe (to fire a weapon larger than a pistol or avoid Parry) that's pretty much the definition of withdrawing from close combat, and it does allow a free attack.
